Kid portraits turned from photo

December 20th, 2013

This painting was completed about a month ago. However, our customer did not approve of it until yesterday. At the same time, we got the feedback from the inbox that:

Thanks so much!!! Love it!!

Thank you for fixing the painting until I was satisfied!  You have great customer service!!”

—Grave P.

At Portrait Painting,  we stand by our work and that’s why we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren’t completely satisfied with your portrait, you don’t pay a dime. It’s that simple. So we will fix the painting until you are satisfied with it.

When she previewed the first proof,  she told me that “My daughters face (specifically, nose and mouth) do not look like the photo.  Please fix that area. ” Then we arranged to modify.

We got feedback from the updated image that” I’m still not satisfied with my daughter’s face. I’ve shown three other people the painting and they all agree that it does not look like her. Please communicate this to the artist. ” Again, we compared the portrait with the original photo, and communicated the changes to our artist to refine.

However, the mother still were not satisfied with it looking at the third image.  She said: “The space between the nose and eyes is too wide and her nose still looks too wide.” We studied the words and painting and communicated with our artist how to change the portrait to what the customer want it to be. In our view, the painting is already on a very good likeness. Then the artist tried to correct her face again.

Finally, we got the agreement. “Thanks so much!!! Love it!!”, the mother said.

Let’s have a look at our painting :

A Boy At The Beach

Put the portraits together

September 24th, 2013

It’s really a good idea to put the children’s portraits in together for the home decor and the wall art decoration.

Recently, we completed the painting for the boy. A few years ago, we painted a portrait for his elder sister.  His parents would like to put their portraits together in the same room, so the same size is requested.  Believe it must be fabulous when you enter your room seeing your boy and girl smiling to you:)

Doubtlessly, the painting captured a special memory.  It doesn’t only record a happy time of the childhood.

Photo to Painting

Most photos we receive are not professionally taken.  Sometimes it’s difficult working with photos taken by point-and-shoot digital cameras, but we try our best.

Our customer sent us the photo below and wanted it turned into a portrait painting.  It’s not a bad photo, but the photo we received was not a very high resolution.  The photo posted below is the actual resolution we received.  Luckily, we have some of the most talented portrait artists around.  They were able to turn a low resolution photo into a beautiful oil painting.

The second photo is a picture of the painting.  It is a 20″ x 24″ oil on canvas.

We just turned the beautiful photo below into an oil painting.  It is much easier for our artists to start with a beautiful photo than a poor photo.  You can see the oil painting below the original image.

This oil painting was rather large (36″ x 48″) so our artist was really able to paint the fine details.  In some cases, a small painting will not turn out as well because it’s difficult to paint the small details well.

Sometimes, an oil painting looks even better than the original photo.  I think this is one of those cases.  This is a recent painting done of two brothers.

As always, the first photo is the original and the second photo is the painting.

Painting of Kids

We turned the photo below into an oil painting.  You’ll notice the girl in the front is not smiling, but the customer wanted the painting done with the girl smiling.  The customer was able to provide us with a photo in which the girl was smiling and the result is a beautiful 30″ x 20″ oil painting.
